After a quick trip to a Dallas hospital, it's back to the ranch for former U.S. President George W. Bush. The 43rd president now has a stent in his heart after doctors discovered a blocked artery during Bush's annual physical exam. The 67-year-old then underwent the procedure at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. A spokesman says the former president is in high spirits and eager to return home. Bush is known for taking his personal health seriously. The former leader is an avid cyclist and has biking trails on his Texas ranch. Officials expect to discharge Bush from the hospital Wednesday.
